Mermaid wishes

Today's card is a special birthday card for a sweet 5-year old - the great-grand-daughter of a friend of mine. My friend requests a special card for her each year, as she is so happy to be able to share in this little one's life so regularly.  Grand-children are such a blessing to us all - they are all special!

I CASEd the watery background from Amanda, of Little crafty pill - not quite as dramatic as hers, but I love the variation you get by using a home made stencil for the waves.  The special birthday girl loves ballet and swimming, but as I made her a ballet themed card last year, we went with swimming this time.  I hope she likes it - for her great granny, especially.

Stamps:  Magical day stamp and Magical Mates die by Stampin' Up!, the other mermaids are from an unbranded stamp set.
Dies:  Numeral die by SU - Number of Years, and the shells are from an unbranded border die, cut apart
Inks:  Distress Oxides - Broken China, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Distress Ink - Chipped Sapphire.


  1. Such a gorgeous card. I'm sure she will love it.

  2. How very beautiful...looks like its an illustration in a storybook...!! :)
